Principal’s Message
Happy 2015
With the beginning of the second semester, I would like to encourage you to stay involved with your child’s academic progress.  We will continue to provide afterschool study time for any students on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday in the library and with individual teachers.  A late bus is also available on those days to take students home.  Please encourage your student to attend whenever they need extra support.  Also available is the Green Room that will provide students with after school academic and enrichment activities.  If you would like to learn more about this opportunity please call Jan Marciniec at extension 1117.

-Please pay special attention to the enclosed MCAS/PARCC schedule.  All 8th, 9th and 10th graders will need to be in attendance every day for the test schedule.  Please plan appointments, and time out of school on alternate days to avoid testing issues.

-Please be aware of the school’s attendance policy—students should not miss more than ten days in a semester in order to receive credit for the class.  Year long classes allow no more than 20 absences.

Please contact me with any concerns or questions at 772-1350 ext. 1005.
Donna Woodcock, Principal

From the desks of Associate Principals Mr. Gaffigan and Mrs. Heathwaite
We would like to remind you that student cell phone use in school is against the rules.  When students have cell phones out in class, they are not paying attention to what is being taught and they also are disturbing other students.  Any student that has a phone out during class will have it taken away and put in the main office.  No phone will be returned to a student without a parent/guardian coming to the Main Office at the end of the school day to pick it up.  

We continue to offer late bus transportation for students who stay after school for extra help with their teachers on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. The bus departs GHS at 3:30 p.m. All students must receive a bus pass from a teacher verifying that they stayed after school in order to ride the bus. Please contact Mr. Gaffigan at extension 1011 or Mrs. Heathwaite at extension1028 if you have questions.

Attendance
Academic success is tied directly to a student’s attendance. Students are expected to be in school 94% of the time (as dictated by the Massachusetts Department Elementary and Secondary Education). Students can miss up to 10 classes in a semester long class and 20 in a year-long class. If a student exceeds this number they will not be given credit for the class and will need to repeat it regardless of their grade.

Late Bus
Every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday there is a late bus that will take bus students home at 3:30pm. The library will be open until 3:15pm each day for students to use as a quiet study space. The bus will also allow students to stay for club meetings and get involved in extracurricular activities.

Student Services Corner
There will be a bereavement group at Greenfield High School beginning later this Fall. The group is for students who are grieving the death of a family member, and wish to receive support. The group is run by Dennis LeBlanc and Annie Diamond, local counselors who have facilitated the group at Greenfield High for the past five years. The group will be held during the school day, for one period per week, and arrangements will be made regarding any missed classwork. The class absence each week will not count against the student. The group will run from late November through April. For more information, please contact Dr. Scott Rice, GHS School Psychologist, at 772-1350 ext. 1130.
